Arriba is a single story beachfront home located just 1 hour drive south of Sydney in Thirroul - the friendly village.

Ideally located right at Thirroul beach, Arriba guests walk just 50 level metres over lawn (no roads to cross) to step onto the fine golden sand of this beautiful surf beach.

***ONE or TWO Bedroom Configuration available to accommodate 2 or 4 guests! - POA.***

Completely renovated in 2011 and fastidiously maintained, Arriba offers 1st class accommodation for up to 10 guests in 4 bedrooms. Nestled in the quietest cul-de-sac with no passing traffic (only 1 other house in the street) guests relax on the massive timber decks, play footy and cricket in the kid-friendly back yard, take breakfast (and lunch and dinner) alfresco if they wish while marvelling at the sparkling ocean and dramatic escarpment views.

Its easy level walking to the fabulous new Thirroul Playground next to the sea water Olympic pool (yep ? there?s also a toddler pool) and nearby coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques.
Or stoll in the opposite direction to spectacular award winning Austinmer Beach with its inviting rock swimming pools and more coffee shops, restaurants and boutiques.

So, after you?ve been surfing or swimming, golfing or shopping, cycling or hiking or you?ve read a book, watched a movie, had a siesta, played some cards, taken dinner and a glass or two of your favourite beverage, Arriba?s super-comfy beds are there for you - the perfect end to the perfect day.

Arriba - the Original 1950?s beach house?.. by far the best choice in Holiday Accommodation.....

Arriba Beachfront Cottage is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 38.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everything you could wish for! 10 of us spent 10 days here and it was absolutely wonderful. At the end of the cul de sac, Arriba has the best of everything - quiet, beach, surf, walking to cafes/restaurants and the loveliest facilities. We had everything we needed at hand. I think it's probably time for a harder mattress in the master bedroom but it was still a very comfortable bed - just a bit soft for this Goldilocks. All the deck chairs were well used as well as the large dining table for family dinners. We all agreed (from NZ, Canada, UK & Melbourne) that we would happily return to do it all again! Thank you Arriba!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Location and Property Stayed for a weekend (10 x people). The house has plenty of space, comfy beds and linen supplied . The location is fantastic with the water views and easy walk onto the sand. House has all the facilities you need. We didnt even have to leave the house. Great place to take kids too, although we made it adults only. Will definitely book again !!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you to Arriba's owners for sharing such a lovely property with us! We stayed at Arriba recently to celebrate mum's 70th birthday as a family group and had an absolute ball. The property is beautifully appointed and thematic in its decoration to ensure you appreciate the nautical location. The kitchen was well equipped (with a large fridge!) and all rooms were welcoming and showed attention to comfort and hospitality. We felt very much at home and quickly relaxed into our 4 day stay. Thank you to Tracey as property manager who was most accommodating - from answering the smallest question to retrieving the left behind bickie barrel - nothing was too much trouble. We'll be back to stay at Arriba and have certainly shared this gem with many friends as a definite option for a 'home away from home'.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stunning home in an absolutely stunning location!Even in the wild Winter weather it was just divine, so glad we decided to do it as a cool weather getaway!With all the authentic nautical accents in the decor, looking out at the ocean made us feel like we were in a storm at sea!(our kids pretended they were steering the boat the whole from the helm in the kitchen the whole time)Fabulous ducted reverse cycle air con made us very comfortable, and the beds were amazing too.My only suggestion would be that they provide a hair dryer on location, but that was a very small thing. The Kitchen was extremely well equipped and all appliances (including the laundry) were absolutely top notch.Tracey, the property manager was extremely helpful and accommodating, making sure every detail is organized for you.If you stay at Arriba, make sure you try Arawan Thai up the road,(eat in, take out or delivery) best Thai I've had anywhere,..and I have Thai Friends so that's saying something!!You won't find a better beach house than this,..and with it's close proximity to Sydney, it's just perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very belated review of our stay at Arriba in September. Tracey was a delight to deal with and very accommodating. Arriba is all that you could hope for, and the location is perfect. A stroll to town, and across from the beach, a perfect spot for some seaside R&R. The cycle path to Wollongong is safe and easy, and has some lovely views, highly recommended. Arriba is ideal for family and/or friends, will definitely return.
